The collections are extensive, and include many examples of glass through the ages. The goblet on the left is from ancient Egypt. It dates back to 1460-1360 B. C. Ancient glass makers used cores and formed the glass around the removable center. I was amazed at the colors and the complexity of designs.
The museum also has some stained glass pieces. This one, by Tiffany, was installed in a mansion near New York City. The home was donated to a church, and most of the furnishings, including this window, were removed and sold. Later, this window was donated to the museum. All of the colors in this window are created by the use of glass.
There were a number of contemporary exhibits, and the art was as varied as could be. It is amazing to see what people imagine and create. This display was called "Continuous Mile". The artist worked with Zulu women to string beads in coiled rope, and then arrange the mile of beaded rope into this cylinder. The artist wanted a project that would take a long time so she could get to know the women.
